Typically bitcoins are bought using traditional currency from a bitcoin "Exchanger", although due to strict anti-money laundering controls, the process can can be tricky.
A user can then withdraw those bitcoins by sending them back to an exchanger like Mt Gox, the best known bitcoin exchange, in return for cash.
It is now possible to actually spend bitcoins without exchanging them for traditional currency first in a few British pubs, including the Pembury Tavern in Hackney, London, for instance.
On 29 October, the world's first bitcoin ATM also went online in Vancouver, Canada, which scans a user's palm before letting them buy or sell bitcoins for cash.
A small group of hardcore users also generate extra bitcoins by "Mining" for them - a process that requires computers to perform the calculations needed to make the digital currency work, in exchange for a share of the built-in inflation.
In August, Germany recognised bitcoin as a "Unit of account", allowing the country to tax users or creators of the digital currency.
